A city centre with a bright future

Aberdeen city centre is undergoing huge regeneration thanks to a £100million package of investment from Aberdeen City Council, the Scottish and UK governments, and private sector partners.

Over the next 18-months, Union Street will be transformed into a high street fit for the 21st century - and for a limited time, incoming businesses can take advantage of fit-out grants of £35,000 and up to two years rent and rates free, subject to conditions.

The wider city economy is set to benefit from over £16billion of investment in the coming decade as it becomes a global leader in the energy transition, food and drink and the life science sectors. Aberdeen is on the up, and there has never been a better time to be part of it.
